WORDPRESS DEVELOPMENT

No more waiting for your web designer to make simple updates to your site. With WordPress, you have control of nearly every aspect of your site and can easily make those simple updates yourself.WordPress is very easy to use and has an intuitive interface. Adding new pages, blog posts, images, etc. on a regular basis is a breeze and can be done quickly. Because the technology is so simple, time spent on formatting is greatly reduced. WordPress is browser-based. You can login from any Internet connected computer and manage your site. WordPress is a self-contained system and does not require HTML editing software (such as Adobe Contribute or Dreamweaver). You can create a new page or blog post, format text, upload images (and edit them), upload documents, video files, image galleries, etc. all without the need for additional HTML or FTP software. WordPress sites are very scalable. You can have hundreds of thousands of pages or blog posts on your site and the performance of the site will not be compromised in the least.

WHAT IS WORDPRESS?

WordPress is a free and open-source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL… WordPress was used by more than 23.3% of the top 10 million websites as of January 2015. WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites

What we learn from this is that many people can use WordPress, even without being PHP experts, and since it’s an open source CMS, anyone with some basic internet skills can use WordPress to build websites. However, that certainly does not qualify them as WordPress developers. In fact, some WordPress opposers often say that WordPress has lowered the standards of web development, imposing a situation where the true experts are no longer as needed as they were in the past:

WordPress development is a profession that is based on the infrastructure of PHP programming, but furthermore, it requires a deep understanding of the WP core, library and other common practices to produce great WP based products. Developing cutting edge WP Plugins or themes, and making them work properly in all environments while overcoming basic conflicts with popular themes and plugins needs vast amounts of WP knowledge, and a good amount of PHP skills, which are often underestimated by the common WP user.
